Combustion Seminar Sessions

Session 1 Fundamentals of Combustion
Terminology, combustion chemistry, characteristics of different fuels and how they burn, proper fuel/air ratio, combustion limits, flame temperature, flame geometry and operational applications.

Session 2 Burners and Nozzles
Discussion of nozzle mix and premix burners, burner performance,including turn down, stability and excess air.

Session 3 Practical Fluid Flow & Piping Practices for Combustion Systems
Fluid flow in combustion systems, including relationships used for equipment sizing.  Discussion of blower types, construction, performance, fan laws, sizing and selection.

Session 4 Radiant Tube Burner Concepts
Theory, construction, application and maintenance of radiant tube burners for combustion systems.

Session 5 Fuel/Air Ratio Control

Atmospheric premix (proportional, mechanical I & II), ratio regulator, linked valves and control.

Session 6 Flame Safety and Sequence Control
Discussion of the function and the need for flame monitoring equipment, technique for flame detection and the features of flame safety equipment.

Session 7 Combustion System Safety
A comparison will be made of the requirements of the various regulating bodie (ie IRL, FM, NFPA). Harware and alternative system design considerations will also be included (particular emphasis on gas trains).  Analysis will be made of specific applications and case histories.

Session 8 Workshop Problem and Solution
A typical combustion-sizing problem will be presented for analysis by the participants.

Session 9 Enhanced Combustion Efficiency
Descriptions of equipment, examples of applications and performance effects of recuperative and regenerative systems for thermal processes.

Session 10 Heat Application - Low Temperature
Discussion of combustion systems used on various industrial heating applications where convection is the primary method of heat transfer.

Session 11 Heat Application - High Temperature

Optimizing heat transfer of furnace combustion systems by relating current burner types and resultant flames to a number of industrial heating configurations.

Session 12 Combustion Troubleshooting

Session 13 Optimizing Combustion Systems Performance
A typical manufacturing plant using melting, heating and heat treating furnaces and boiler isused as an example to illustrate how to organize and implement an energy use optimization program, designed to reduce total operating costs.  Each furnace and department is evaluated to show how energy conservation techniques, scheduling and operating practice improvements increase productivity, decrease costs and often reduce energy use.  The overall impact on NOx and CO2 emissions is tracked.

Session 14 Furnace and Process Controls
The application process controls, with emphasis on furnace and combustion systems controls to optimize efficiency, product quality and productivity.

Session 15 Combustion Systems and the Environment
The mechanisms and variables that influence NOx formations, its environmental impact and control techniques are described.  Key topics include:  flame temperature, combustion control, burner design, process variables and post combustion control of emissions.

Session 16 Panel Discussion Combustion System Maintenance

To complete the seminar's comprehensive coverage of combustion systems, time is allocated for an open discussion of practical furnace maintenance activities.  Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences and concerns with other attendees.
